Busy Week

We have had a full week. And I am tired. And its not good to start the Ragnar Relay Race tired, but what do you do?

Between work, Young Womens, getting ready for Ragnar, and tons of playing, I barely had time to scrub my disgusting toilets.

But here are some pics of our fun times. Sorry no pic of me scrubbing urine stains.


We met Grandma Teri and Heidi and her crew at Liberty Park on Tuesday. It was good to get out and enjoy warm weather. And these three can't get enough of each other.
Oakley is getting much braver with water. She even went through the tunnel of terror.

My girls, not so much. They mostly stuck to the dry toys.

And this little guys just stared at the fun.

Oliver didn't like the direct spray, but loved playing in the tunnel when the water was off.

Then there was some laying out to get warm and dry.

And, finally, the highlight of the outing, feeding the seagulls. The kids thought it was awesome.

Next on the agenda:


Now that we have a zoo pass we will be having a lot of posts about it. And the best thing about the pass? All you can ride rides. Seeing how that is my kids favorite part, its a good thing we have unlimited fun times ahead.

Just had to document that I was actually there.

The zoo is now full of dinosaurs. They even have a couple that squirt "poison" at you. The kids loved every second of that. And, once again, Oliver was being chicken. He was screaming and holding on to me around this big fella, the T Rex.

The crew of cousins (of course we miss James and Jack. and Avery didn't want to be in the pic).

The whole time we were at the zoo, the kids just asked and asked when it was time to ride the "going around ride."

We finished the trip off with some good snacks-ice cream cones, cotton candy, and popcorn.

Now I am off to run around some mountains. Wish me luck.

Looks like Liberty Park has made some serious upgrades since I lived there - that looks fun! And isn't the point of the zoo to have ALIVE animals? Not sure I get the dinosaurs. I can see why Oliver is scare :)

And great job on your race! Especially with your bruised foot - I'm surprised you even ran, let alone beating all the guys!! Very cool. And tell Luke I said he needs to stop being so lazy.

Liberty Park looks like so much fun! And it looks like they added some stuff? I love that pic of everyone catching some rays.

And what about the zoo? Where did all the dinosaurs come from?
